    RoTF, err... Kinda Game Accurate Soundwave; Updated 3/6/10 w/ better pics + alt mode

    So, the idea for this came after my bro bought the Nest battle pack. I noticed that the Soundwave in that pack was really supposed to be the Soundwave in the Gathering at the Nemesis pack. Then, I noticed that the Soundwave in the GatN pack was really supposed to be the Soundwave in the RoTF game DLC, sorta. I think it's actually the other way around.

    Anyway, so then I decided to recreate that DLC Soundwave in toy form. So I picked up a preview wave Soundwave, bought some new enamel paints, and got to work. On the first day of work, I met a problem no man or woman should ever have to face.
    I split blue paint all over his wings.

    I was so pissed that I almost gave up after about twenty minutes of work. Then I was introduced to my new best friend: Cupran. It's this gentle paint remover for your hands. It worked perfectly for removing the spilt paint and cleaning my brushes.

    So, after a week of work, a three week hiatus, and a few more days of work, I finished Soundwave just last night. Here he is:

    Pics are kinda wonky. If anyone wants me to, I'll try to take better pics.

    Well, I tried to take some better pics.
    Some are still a bit fuzzy, but overall I think they're better:

    Since the paint is dry, I was finally able to transform him:

    I don't know how I missed this, but that's some snazy-ass work there. Love how he's "movie accurate" on the one side and game-accuarte on the other.

    Love the war beaten Soundwave! The blue selection is great, and he is very "dirty" and weathered. Looks great! I actually really like Soundwave's toy. He looks tough and the mold details are great. He's kind of useless to transform, but still a good looking toy....and you made it better! Well done.
